I got the hoa to install aerators in the lakes. we had some disagreements and I quit the board. We then had some outside people come and snag the aerators lines. Now the HOA is put a moratorium against fishing for 6+ mths. Is this in any way legal? is there a way to fight it?
You can likely work the matter through the Board---the one you quit--in accordance with the by-laws and Constitution of your HOA.

It may be legal; check the documents and see what rule making power the Board has. I think it's reasonable if the Board has the power and they're trying to bring back the fish. Fight it? You should have stayed on the Board and used the power of persuasion to get them to come around.....
I am only admitted to practice in Florida so my answers in other states are based on 35 years of experience in this field and are not legal advice. This reply does not create the attorney client relationship, which only occurs upon execution of a fee agreement with our firm. Please do not contact us for followup advice on these general observations.
It depends on who owns the lakes, the land adjacent to the lakes and the rulemaking authority of the board. This would require a review of the governing documents and plats of the association.
